A complete lead alloy weight of medieval date. The weight is large and plano-convex in section, the front face formed in the shape of a man's head with mouldings representing eyes, nose and mouth.

Lead alloy ampulla. Hollow cast bag-shaped miniature vessel with a slight constriction at the springing of its elongated neck, where a pair of horizontally moulded lines marks the narrowest point.
